Adapting a Tray for Under the Tv.

I had two trays left over after I put both monitors on the desk at eye level. So, I needed one under the tv. But it had legs just a bit too far apart to fit on my tv table. So, I fixed it!!

This sign was labor intensive but sooooo worth it. Using glass nuggets, sign wood and numbers, it came together nicely.

super easy and fast pin cushion

Super Easy and Fast Pin Cushion

This doesn't have but one step so sorry for the short post. But there really aren't any so here you go just the same.When you have an "impromptu" sewing project and don't have a pin cushion, consider this.You simply grab a ball of yarn that you no longer need, and stuff it into a container like this frosting one, an old mug, a coffee can, or Crystal Light tube. Voila! Instant pin cushion!Acrylic yarn is great for pins, as they slide through the fibers so easily. You can even keep smaller knitting needles in there, as there is plenty of room for the tips and won't make the cup fall.N-JOY!
